In brief: No
Cedax (ceftibuten) is a common and safe antibiotic that will not interfere with most anesthetics.
However, you should always tell your physician or anesthesiologist what medications you are on before a procedure, especially if they will be administering your home medications while you are in the hospital.

In brief: Should not be.
Although there are some medications that are contraindicated with Cedax (ceftibuten) - there are no major /moderate interactions with majority of anesthesia type meds (from literature that I reviewed).

In brief: No
Being on an anti-biotic will have no affect on general anesthesia.
In fact for most surgeries we will give you more anti-biotic before the surgeon starts work.
